    So, how does everyone wash their eggs? I've seen kits, wipes, washes, and powders. Looking for the best method. Thanks for your ideas!

    Every State Agricultural University publishes a guide to proper egg handling, as does the US Dept of Agriculture. This one from Virginia Tech is as good as most. Although, most guides recommend the water be 20 degrees warmer than the egg.
